Game of Thrones Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The Lannister clan has plenty to worry about already on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but now two of them are about to face a threat possibly even greater than Daenerys’ dragons or Melisandre’s shadow monsters: Regency-era zombies.

Charles Dance and Lena Headey, who play Tywin and Cersei respectively, are set for the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. As the title indicates, it’s an adaptation of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice… plus zombies. More on the Game of Thrones Pride and Prejudice and Zombies casting after the jump.

Charles Dance recently dropped some potential clues about the return of Tywin Lannister next season, which… well, let’s just put a big fat Game of Thrones Season 4 spoiler alert right here and continue the discussion after the jump.

Imitation Game trailers

Prickly geniuses aren’t the only thing Benedict Cumberbatch knows how to play, but they do kind of seem to be his specialty. The Sherlock star’s latest movie is The Imitation Game, in which he plays brilliant but troubled mathematician / cryptologist / computer scientist / etc. Alan Turing.

During World War II, Turing was called upon to help Britain crack Germany’s codes. He was spectacularly successful, and is credited with helping turn the tides in the Allies’ favor. Hit the jump to watch the first The Imitation Game trailers. Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, and Matthew Goode also star.

Game of Thrones - Tywin Lannister

Game of Thrones isn’t due to return for another seven or eight months, which means at this point we have to take our glimpses of Westeros where we can get ‘em. Today, our little slice of the Seven Kingdoms comes courtesy of HBO itself, which has just posted a fun deleted scene from Season 3.

In it, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) is enjoying a bit of fishing when Pycelle (Julian Glover) approaches him with a request. Watch the clip after the jump.

Believe it or not, there’s just 34 days left to go until the second season premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones. And as that date approaches, the teasers and trailers have been getting ever so slightly more revealing. The latest ditches the dramatic narration of the last two, so we get more dialogue this time around — and, consequently, a better idea of the struggles the characters will be facing in the upcoming season. Watch the video after the jump. (Spoilers for Season One follow, obviously.)

Though I was excited by the earlier teaser for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, at the risk of sounding like a swooning fangirl, I have to say that even that pales in comparison to this new trailer. This time around, it’s Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) who takes over narrating duties, explaining exactly who everyone is and what they’re doing — without actually revealing anything at all, of course. Tricky eunuch bastard. Naturally, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage gets some good face time as well. Watch the video after the jump. (Warning: Spoilers for Season 1 follow.)

Last year Maggie Carey‘s film The Hand Job was announced, in which Aubrey Plaza would play a high school graduate who decides she needs a lot more sexual experience before college, and proceeds to work her way through a checklist of, er, action items. Yesterday many more cast members were announced and today we have even more, and roles for many of them.

Connie Britton will play the main character’s “liberal, free-spirited mother,” Mae Whitman and Alia Shawkat are two of her best friends; and Scott Porter will play a guy in a band that Plaza has a crush on.

Dominic Dierkes and D.C. Pierson (along with their Derrick Comedy co-member Don Glover) will play lifeguards; Bill Hader will be their stoned boss at the pool. Johnny Simmons is Plaza’s classmate and co-worker, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse is his sci-fi nerd best friend. There will be a few more roles cast yet, but this is a great cast so far. And after Easy A I very much welcome more efforts to turn the typical male coming of age sex comedy into a story outline that girls can get lost in, too. [Variety]

After the break, Keira Knightley heads to TV — in a way — for the Syfy miniseries Neverland. Read More »

Wizard people, dear reader. The casting director on Your Highness must really hate shitty talent. Today brings confirmation that Justin Theroux, the guy burdened with writing Iron Man 2 and hiding scythe-like eyebrows, will play a badguy wizard in the R-rated stoner fantasia due 2010 from Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green.
